An Omen, pt. 2

Read part 1

I bet you thought I wasn't going to continue this thought. Well, you were wrong. Get over it.

As self-service-storage (SSS) increases, probability of downfall approaches 1.So, my basic point is that as the density of self storage facilities increases, the chance that a society will reach its downfall becomes greater and greater, until eventually it is a sure thing. For a visual representation of this, I have created the lovely graph at right. As you can see, as the number of self-service-storage (SSS) facilities per mile increase, the probability of a society's downfall approaches 1 (absolutely certain). You may notice that I did not provide any numbers along the horizontal axis. This is not because I do not know the numbers that should appear, but rather because it would do you no good to know them. Unless you are capable of changing an entire society--then it might help. Feel free to contact me if that's the case.

For the rest of you, the only real reason for me making this post is so that you can see what's coming. Whenever the fall of society finally happens, you will at least be able to say that you saw it coming. And isn't that what's really important? Of course it is.

So, you are saying that the probability of collapse is zero, and will remain so forever.

1) The number of self-storage units on earth is finite, and will always remain so.

2) The number of miles on the earth is infinite, and will always remain so. (Proof: take an infinitely thin thread, wrap it around the earth until you have covered the whole earth)

3) A finite number divided by infinity is zero.

4) Therefore, the probability of society's collapse is also zero.

Now, if SSS per SQUARE MILE is an indicator of collapse of society, THEN we might be in trouble. :)

It's per mile of roadway, smart-ash.
